Mustafah Abdulaziz - Memory Loss
“I’m interested in the connection between how we as Americans present ourselves and our familiar environments and the subsequent disconnects created when we forget how we appear. In a time when our shared culture is represented in such polarising extremes, I looked for the line between me, the drifting outsider, and the scene that strives to appear one way but appears to me another.”
This insightful series of images from photographer Mustafah Abdulaziz documents the inherent contradictions of everyday life. From the people awaiting the arrival of Hurricane Irene on Coney Island, to the patrol car stationed under a tree in Pennsylvania. Simply by seeing such ‘ordinary’ occurances, recorded photographically, Abdulaziz highlights the interesting juxtapositions that surround our ‘normal’ lives on a day-to-day basis.
